As a graduate IDA-member, you have the right to a career counselling session of approx. 1 hour's duration every six months.
Through a career counselling session, you can make a plan for creating a more satisfying working life, increase your value to employers, and adapt to a job market that is constantly evolving.
Our career consultants can, for example, assist you in uncovering your competencies, strengths and goals, as well as your current professional challenges - things that may be invisible to yourself, but which can have great significance for your current and future working life.
When you book a career counselling session, we ask you first of all for a brief description of why you want career counselling. It is important that you put into words how you would like us to assist you. Try to be as specific as you can in describing what you expect from the counsellor.
Before the meeting, you will receive some material that you must prepare in advance. The material may be of different nature depending on the content of the conversation. It can be articles you need to read, a situation you need to reflect on or a task you need to solve.
It is important that you set aside some time for preparation prior to the career counselling session. You will also be asked to send a copy of your CV - even if the interview is not about job search. That way, our advisor can prepare as thoroughly as possible.
Please note: The offer only applies to those who have completed their education.
